What happened with BST??? I know garth's issues, but I hadn't heard about yours.
I have that Motorcyclist article. Thanks. What I can't figure out is that if the rearset bolts have the same shoulder length, how they would be ok???
Here's JJ's pic of the rearset bolt vs the rotor bolts...
Here's JJ's pic of Yoyodyne's bolt (can I assume this is the kawaski replacement rotor bolt from yoyodyne?)
Here's JJ's pic of the front bolt clearance issue
I'll dig through the spare bolts and look for the rearsets bolts today.
Thanks again. I cannot believe there isn't more traffic regarding this on the internet forums.
As you can easily see from the pics you posted the Yoyodyne Titanium Kawasaki spec rotor bolt has a much longer shoulder than the stock Kawasaki rotor bolt. Thus it bottoms out in the Marche rear wheel rotor counterbore and caused me to strip one thread in the black rotor mount before I realized what I did. If used on a STOCK wheel the Yoyodyne Titanium bolt would have worked OK, no problem. Thats the fun of modding.
Those Kawasaki spec Yoyodyne Titanium bolts work OK with the stock wheels, just not Marches. I should have been more careful to be honest.
The stock rotor bolts shoulder seems OK, but the bolt itself is to long and bottoms out against the hub as one of the pics shows.
You need to cut the stock rotor bolts over all length shorter or get the shorter ones from the 2007 passenger pegs / rear sets.
Yes I agree, Marches suck, and BST suck. I will never own either again.
Gonna see if I can find me some JB Magtan, somewhere, Japan, eBay, Wera forums. Im on the hunt because I am missing good riding weather while my bikes sits with wheels I am too scared to ride on.
